Low Back Pain: Some Real Answers
Of back pain there has been much written, and yet little proven. How can it be that everyone is an expert and yet there has been so little progress? The common forms of back pain defy meaningful diagnosis, treatment is unreliable, and disability and handicap show an inexorable increase. Are matters being made worse with well intentioned but misleading advice? Should published research be more severely criticized? How does one even begin to find a solution to these problems? This book goes a long way towards answering some of these questions. (Product Description).
